As a lifelong fan of The Lemonheads, owning every studio album to date, I still decided to buy this album just to have all the band's best known songs on the one CD. I know that there will probably be some fans who might be disappointed that it doesn't include any of their early work before they signed with Atlantic Records, but this compilation does do what it states in the title - it serves as a best of the 'Atlantic' years. This period spans 1990-1997, when the band enjoyed two albums which were certified Gold in both the UK and US, five major hit singles, and a further seven minor hits.

My favourite tracks will always be 'It's A Shame About Ray' and 'My Drug Buddy', but there is much more to love here including the opening track 'Confetti', my favourite cover version of Simon & Garfunkle's classic 'Mrs. Robinson', the country styled 'Big Gay Heart', and a wonderful acoustic 'Ride With Me'. Although Evan Dando and his men are no longer half as popular as they were in the 1990s, they still maintain a loyal fan base. If you enjoy alternative rock music - The Lemonheads are for you.

For a more extensive collection, covering what was recorded before the Atlantic sessions, and what came after: see Music Club Deluxe's excellent two-disc set: Laughing All The Way To The Cleaners - The Best Of.

As best of albums goes this has to be one of my favoutites. I picked this up recently after being dismayed to find out my mum had chucked out my old Lemonheads CD´s when she moved house.
For me this is an excellent record that catalogues the band´s finest years. Personally I wasn´t left in the slightest bit disappointed by this. I feel Evan Dando produced his finest body of work during the years with Atlantic and although there are a couple of puzzling absentees from those albums you are made fully aware of his greatness as a song writer and the delicate beauty of his voice. On these songs you really see him mature as a songwriter as they moved away from the pop/punk averageness of their early years.
"Confetti," "Shame about Ray," "drug buddy" and "rudderless," were all favourites from my early teens and they have retained their infectiousness with the years.
There is the odd scrappy moment, "Hospital" is a track I don´t feel really deserved it´s place on the record along with the last track with Rick James. It seems he was passing by the studio that day. The presence of tracks like "outdoor type," which Evan often performed life is nice to see.
What is apparant when you listen to this album is that the songs really stand the test of time and this band were far more than a passing fad in the pop charts.
A fine testament to a great singer/songwriter.

First of all, don't be fooled by the title - this isn't the best of The Lemonheads. That said, there are plenty of excellent moments, demonstrating both Evan Dando's songwriting ability (It's A Shame About Ray, My Drug Buddy), and the bands uncanny knack for covering songs and making them better than the original (Mrs. Robinson).
The only error I find with this compilation is the overlooking of such tracks as, "Luka" and, "Different Drum" from the listing (the latter being the song which got me interested in The Lemonheads in the first place), hence 4 stars, not 5.
All in all, a great assortment by one of the most overlooked bands of the 80's/90's, but more of a reference point to new fans than a definitive collection.

This album collects the best of The Lemonheads' work while signed to Atlantic, so it covers the albums 'Lovey', 'It's a Shame About Ray', 'Come On Feel The Lemonheads' and 'Car Button Cloth'. Most of the material comes from the middle two albums; from 'Lovey' we have a version of 'Ride With Me' (not the album version) and from 'Car Button Cloth' we get the underrated 'Hospital' and 'The Outdoor Type'.
So Atlantic have packaged this up as a pop album, brushing the punk aggression of 'Lovey' under the carpet, minimising the 'my drug hell' references and presenting the lovable Evan Dando instead. Having said that, almost every song here is excellent bubblegum pop (though the 'new' track 'Rudy With A Flashlight' isn't up to much, really).
When you listen to this best-of, you realise how good Evan Dando is at (1) writing songs, and (2) singing them - the kind of stuff that the drug-focused media coverage never emphasised. I'm just hoping Evan gets his act together and sorts out a new label for himself... in the meantime, I could do someone compiling "The Best of The Lemonheads: The Taang! Years" - with 'Luka', 'Circle of One', 'Amazing Grace' and all the old ones...

Very good summary of all my favorite Lemonheads albums, even though Brass Buttons should be on it too. A must have, especially now it's getting more and more difficult to find the earliest albums on CD, one by one they're taken out of production. Would be nice if the booklet contained lyrics but oh well, Evan Dando's still gorgeous face makes up for that :-)
